Indiagames announces expansion of its European operations

Indiagames Ltd, one of the leading mobile content publishers, has announced the expansion of its European operations and the appointment of Steve Gordon as Director, Sales and Marketing - Europe.

Indiagames, which is headquartered in Mumbai, has operations in Los Angeles, where it has existing relationships with key Hollywood studios like Universal, Fox, Miramax, Disney, Sony Pictures, and New Line Cinema.

It has worked productions like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Godzilla, Jurassic Park, Bruce Lee, The Mummy, Predator and Spy Kids.

Steve Gordon joins Indiagames from Vodafone UK, where he served as Head of Games. At Vodafone, Steve was the key executive involved in building and developing the Vodafone Live games business over the past three years.

Steve had taken a Java games business worth thousands and built it into a multi-million pound operation in revenue terms, establishing Vodafone as a market leader in the process.

Prior to joining Vodafone UK, Steve was the Games Business Development Manager at British Telecom, working with partners Microsoft and Sony to connect broadband console players. Steve has always been an avid gamer and has spent his entire career in the business of games.

Commenting on the development, Vishal Gondal, CEO, Indiagames, said, “Though we have existing strong relationships with key European players like Vodafone, Telefonica, Orange and T-Mobile, we believe that a strong local presence will provide a boost to our European business. We are very excited to have Steve as part of the Indiagames team.”

Talking about his new appointment, Gordon added, “Indiagames has a very strong development team and I am very impressed with their plans for the business. I look forward to bringing my skills from the operator side to offer our customers an all round strong product proposition in the future.”
